Chelsea are not expecting to sell Timo Werner this summer. (Kevin Palmer)
His name has been mentioned in a potential swap deal but this is apparently fake news.
Stuttgart sporting director Sven Mislintat isn’t worried about the latest rumours of Chelsea and other sides looking at Kalajdžić.
“Sasa still has a two-year contract with us and feels right at home. You can see that. He’s been training in VfB clothes all summer. I’m not that worried about that, to be honest,” said Mislintat. (SportWitness)
Inter Milan see Batshuayi as an option in terms of bringing in a new striker.
Batshuayi does not ‘warm’ Inters management.
If Inter progress with the deal they see Giroud’s transfer as the perfect layout for their swoop on the Belgian. They would hope the deal would only cost a few million. (SportWitness)
Lewandowski has long been in Chelsea’s thoughts and interest could be revived as Chelsea continue their search for a goalscorer.
The 32-year-old could be tempted with a move away this summer for a new experience. (Goal)
Harry Kane will assess his future when he returns from holiday.
However, Daniel Levy makes the club extremely hard to work with, which could hinder the potential of Kane joining Chelsea. (Goal)
Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger
The defensive pairing have just one year left on their deals and talks around new contracts for the two have not progressed. (Goal)
Chelsea have the option to extend Emerson’s contract by a year.
This helps to justify the Blues asking price of around £22m. (Nizaar Kinsella)
Tammy Abraham is admired by several influential voices inside Arsenal, including Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal see Abraham as a potential target this summer.
Abraham is understood to be aware of Arsenal’s interest, and would be open to the prospect of a move across London.
Arsenal have the preference of a loan deal with an option to buy. If this kind of deal were to go through, Chelsea would put the fee at around £40m.
Tammy Abraham moving to Arsenal is reliant on outgoings from the Emirates.
The transfer of Alexandre Lacazette away from Arsenal would make the signing of Tammy Abraham more likely and more logical. (The Athletic)
“The more you talk to people about the Declan Rice situation, the more you think a move could still happen in this window. He has made it very clear to West Ham that he won’t sign a new deal & as reported elsewhere, wants to be kept informed of any bids. Would clearly favour Chelsea over any other club.” (Simon Johnson)
There is nothing in regards to a potential move back to West London for Eden Hazard. (Simon Johnson)
The deal between Leeds and Lewis Bate was confirmed today.
He’ll join their U23’s for this upcoming season.
It is possible Bate was lured away due to the project that Leeds are undergoing as of this moment, with signings like Sam Greenwood, Crysencio Summerville and Joe Gelhardt all on the brink of first team chances.
Chelsea are stepping up their search for a third-choice goalkeeper and have Sergio Romero on their list of candidates. (The Telegraph)
Romero is a free agent and would sign for Chelsea in a free transfer.
The 34-year-old Argentinian is the perfect player to bring in as a third choice. He has a lot of experience that can be passed down to his younger counterparts and he is perfectly capable of stepping in when needed.
